Scared

Wow!! I just got home from work a little while ago...it was raining so hard that I could barely see and all the roads are just a mess. I had to take a detour...such a round about way to get home let me tell you...took me about an hour compared to what takes me about 25 mins. normally. The creek behind our house is moving really really fast and it is smaking into the bridge that goes over it. It sure is making some really loud sounds! A tree crashed into it a while ago. So far the power is on...obviously...but who knows for how long! I dont know if Jason will be able to get home from work...he still has a half an hour to go. I called him and ended up crying on the phone because this creek really has me freaked out! It is so strange...I keep getting the flash light and shining it out the back door to see where it is...not like is going to go down or anything...I guess I just keep checking to make sure it is not at the back door. I just keep rambling on and on because I know I will go check it again soon and then just walk all over the house about 50 times...that is not going to help anything! But...I will have some good flood pictures tomorrow...like that is supposed to make me feel any better! I know I feel much better once Jason gets home from work! I need to calm down...just breath deep...nice clensing breths...nope not working...lol

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

  LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that) American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again. A close up! HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next. Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

OneNote | A Look Inside

I still have a few more notes to move over from Evernote but I am loving OneNote.  I keep to do lists, goals, projects, ideas, genealogy research and so much more in OneNote.  So what does my setup look like?  Lets take a look! {I usually use OneNote 2016 but I have tried the Windows 10 app and it works just as good.} The first screen shot below is OneNote 2016 and the second is from the Windows 10 app.  My first notebook is my task management notebook.  In this notebook I have my Inbox, which is my default section for incoming stuff, calendar and lists.  {Emails that I have sent to OneNote and screen clips go in my Inbox section.} The next notebook is for my blog, and then the Genealogy notebook is for research notes, then I have the GBT notebook which I use for notes and reminders for GeneaBloggersTribe, the Reference notebook is for things that don't belong in one of the other notebooks,  and the last notebook is the Archive. Lets take a closer look at some o

Marine Casualty Card Database

While I was writing Top 10 Blog Posts for 2019 I discovered that my top post was US Marine Casualty Cards from 2014.  Wow!  {There is also an update to the original post here  where I show some more information that was sent to me.}  I went back to read the post and discovered that the links no longer work.  I did a little digging and found a link to the Casualty Card Database at the Marine Corps University website.  At this site you click on the war you want to search and download a searchable spreadsheet.  Once you locate your Marine you send an email to request the card.  There are also links to download information about what the codes mean on the cards. I also found that you can search the U.S. Marine Corps Casualty Index, 1940-1958 , at Ancestry.com.  It gives the casualty date, type, unit, and service number.  There is a link to go to another website from the Ancestry database but that link does not work. {I believe it is the same as the link from my original post
